The popularity of Nutraviva Marine Collagen is due to its favourable characteristics and fewer concerns compared to beef-derived collagen. Marine Collagen is exclusively produced from deep-sea cod skin, caught from the crystal clear waters of the North Atlantic Ocean. Our marine collagen is 100% natural and organic resulting in the highest quality collagen peptides available on the market today.
The lower molecular weight of Marine Collagen peptides results in improved digestibility and increased bioavailability. This highly bio-active collagen peptide makes it particularly suitable for a wide range of beauty and cosmetics applications as well as in the health and sporting industries.
Marine Collagen peptides have an average molecular weight of between 3000 Da to 6000 Da which has little to no taste and smell and is therefore excellent to use in all beverages and recipes.
The absorption of marine collagen peptides into the body is proven to be up to 1.5 times more efficient than collagen sourced from bovine or porcine and the bio-availability is also superior. One of the advantages of marine collagen is that it has a particular high content of the amino acids glycine, proline and hydroxyproline. The amino acids stimulate cells in the skin, bones and connective tissues and leads to the production of new collagen. Clinical studies recommend a daily dose of 10g, for a minimum of three months, for best effect. Followed by a daily maintenance dose of 5g. Since it is readily soluble in water, it can be mixed with beverages such as water, juice or other liquids, or in foods such as yoghurt, porridge or cereals.
For those individuals who are looking to maximise the benefits of the edible beauty concept, we have developed a product called Simply Beautiful. After consulting numerous skin and health professionals and collaborating with a nutritional specialist, we launched a beauty formula that combines our premium marine collagen with a number of specialised ingredients. These all work in synergy to help improve the appearance, structure and integrity of your skin, hair and nails.
Simply Beautiful contains the prebiotic inulin, silica, hyaluronic acid, vitamin C and E, beta carotene and a range of superfruits high in antioxidants, working in conjunction with our marine collagen to not only fight against the effects of ageing, but to also help slow down and even reverse the decline of natural collagen storage in the body.
Added benefits for the musculoskeletal system
Many scientific and preclinical studies show various positive effects on tendon flexibility, ligament stability, muscle and bone integrity. Subjects in these trials reported reduced pain and inflammation associated with arthritis and when used in conjunction with a moderate resistance program improved body composition by increasing the fat-free mass and muscle strength, and reducing fat mass in elderly subjects with sarcopenia.
